The NMFPD would like to thank everyone for participating, whether you created a display or simply voted for your favorite (yes, all 700 of you.) We also thank Modkar Farms for donating pumpkins and straw to the fire station displays.

The NMFPD is excited to make next year bigger and better and is proud of the district community as they come together and show off their festive spirit.
